Onyx Path Publishing Announces Scion: Dragon and Scion: Masks of the Mythos Supplements for the Scion 2nd Edition RPG


January 18, 2019 — Rich Thomas, founder and creative director of Onyx Path Publishing announced Scion: Dragon and Scion: Masks of the Mythos, two new supplements for the Scion tabletop RPG. Both offer new opportunities for gameplay by introducing new Pantheons, rules, storytelling advice, and expanded setting materials using the Storypath system.

Scion: Dragon will be a new supplement that shows players how dragons fit into the World of Scion. Developed by Danielle Lauzon, a designer of the Storypath system whose worked on the Trinity Continuum, Scion, Dystopia Rising: Evolution, and They Came from Beneath the Sea! gamelines, the supplement will introduce playable dragon Scions and outline the role of dragons and their Pantheons in the cold war between the Gods and Titans.

“I’m excited to delve into dragon mythology in relation to Scion. It’s especially interesting to think about the kinds of abilities and powers dragons would pass along to their children,” said developer Danielle Lauzon. “I’m also looking forward to stretching the Storypath system once more into a different kind of play style that adapts the Scion play to a more personal and exploratory experience.”

Scion: Masks of the Mythos will be a Lovecraft-inspired supplement developed by award-winning game designer Chris Spivey whose work includes Harlem Unbound, Cthulhu Confidential, and Scion Second Edition. The supplement will outline a Mythos-related Pantheon, the Lovecraft Country setting, new Scions, antagonists, and a short adventure. It will also show how the Mythos fits into the World of Scion while retaining its mythic, heroic feel.

“I am incredibly honored and excited that Onyx Path reached out to me about this project. I can’t wait to assemble the team, dive into the modern-day Mythos, and tangle with Great Cthulhu,” said developer Chris Spivey.

Scion: Dragon and Scion: Masks of the Mythos are scheduled for late 2019 Kickstarters with 2020 digital and retail hardcover releases. The supplements will be designed using the Storypath System, the engine that powers Onyx Path’s Scion 2nd Edition, They Came from Beneath the Sea!, and Trinity Continuum RPGs.

    Are these considered, I guess, “canon” for the 2nd Edition Scion setting?

    1. Eddy Webb Avatar

      They are as canon as you want them to be. As the Origin book goes into, there are a variety of “The Worlds” out there, so these give you a chance to piece together the interpretation of The World you want. So if you don’t groove on the idea of having the Mythos pantheon in your game, you can leave it out.

    Clarification request: is there going to be two Kickstarters – one for each game – or will they both be on one Kickstarter at the same time (theoretically fall 2019)?

    1. richt Avatar

      We’ll see when we get there, but we’re unlikely to have one KS for the two separate projects.

    I’m always happy to see more Scion projects.

    So wait, are these going to be before Demigod or after?

    1. Eddy Webb Avatar

      We’ll see when we get there, but Demigod is already hiring writers, while these are still in the outline phase.

    That feel when you put off your super-dark “What does it even mean to be a hero when your parents are antithetical to everything human?” Lovecraft conversion of Scion you were slowly working on during 1e because of the 2e announcement…

    Wait what? I’ve been waiting for Origin and Hero 2e to be released.I can’t find them anywhere.

    1. GREEM Avatar

      They’re in indexing — once that’s done (and the requisite layout passes to make sure nothing broke the layout) they’ll presumably send the updated versions to the presses and then they’ll be available. PDF first, per usual, followed by physical on-demand and deluxe edition.

        Oh ok. I thought it wasn’t out yet just got confused by the announcment of new content. I’ll keep an eye out for the hard copy
